No Doubt Photo: Billboard.com

So U2 drops out of the big KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas line-up. Who do you have replace them and noe get mad about it? No doubt it would be Southern California's own No Doubt right? Exactly.

Tony Kanal of No Doubt called into KROQ to make the announcement. He also talks about the newly remodeled Forum and how the bathrooms are now clean. He even makes a Prince "Purple Rain" tour reference. Ha!

As KROQ said, you cannot replace U2 but let me tell you, No Doubt was a great decision, especially with the set list No Doubt has been doing lately.-DocFB

Diagnosis: KROQ has it covered for #KROQXMAS25

PRINCE TO TAKE OVER UK PART II IN MAY!!! NEW DATES ANNOUNCED!

PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL-MAY

PRINCE wasn't playing when he said he would be returning to the UK/London after simply taking over there for at least a month with surprise shows all over London. There has already been 4 shows announced that will go on sale Friday.

http://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/ and http://www.gigsandtours.com/ already have the shows listed. The news broke over here in the U.S. around 3 in the morning my time and I reached out to confirm the story that The Guardian broke, figuring Prince's people would still be up. Still no response but fairly obvious the icon is coming back!

Only UK dates have been announced...so far. Leaving it as London/UK as more dates will be announced.

Extra Dates in UK

There is a lot of room for shows to be added just between the dates and who knows how long he will be out there this time?-DocFB

Diagnosis: Make sure not to miss next week's PRINCE Spreecast where we will be discussing the UK dates and more! We might have to do a special UK Spreecast again in May!

They also asked about the gymnastics of Prince while on stage. All right then.

No Lip Syncing! EMINEM’s Uncensored “Rap God” YouTube Awards Performance!

Eminem Rap God Cover

EMINEM performed on the YouTube Awards where he won Artist Of The Year. It aired after his SNL questionable lip syncing episode.

It is obvious that Eminem is NOT lip syncing and just like his SNL performance, he keeps looking down to the lyric monitor as a reminder of what the lyrics are.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Shot in black and white, it is a much more powerful performance than SNL. Big time
